Watch Matlab do parallel computing on a GPU very easily and quickly? Why use R, Hadoop, MapReduce, HBASE, etc?
If you watched this webinar, you would be asking yourself several many questions:
- Why use R which seems kind of premature compared to Matlab?
- 2Even if you used this Revolutionary Analytics project with Hadoop, you still have so much to set up and manage compared to Matlab’s Parallel Toolbox. This R project is no where complete as compared to the maturity of Matlab.
Regardless of cost, I still feel this makes you much more productive as compared to setting and up managing hardware and underlying technologies like Hadoop/HBASE/MapReduce etc with R. It just seems to me, it would not add up as compared to the productivity you get out box with Matlab. Sometimes the cost of time needs to be factored into something like open source technologies which are free. Just my worthless two cents.
